Umbilical Dystrophy is a crazy bastard child and a standalone single that did not want to fit or play along with any other songs. It was written for our new album, but as the album grew in one direction, it became clear Umbilical wanted no part in it. So enjoy...

So we have decided to release the recordings we had for an EP that was written with pre-production recorded prior to the completion of our album Xen . This EP was the planned follow-up to Xen before Adam took leave from the band. It seemed going back to this material would feel like a backwards step, seeing as our new album is leaps and bounds again beyond what is on offer here. But myself and Adam felt that these pre-production sessions captured the magic of these songs and the message therein, we feel this material was purely inspired and we are very proud of what we had created. So what you have here is the last mixes we had as the sessions were lost years ago on an old hard drive. We have mastered and cleaned up as much as we could manage with the help of Troy Mccosker (www.facebook.com/troyaudioninja
). We hope you enjoy this piece of AMDBL history and what is arguably our most personal and darkest material to date.
